Summary

A narrated film showing the construction of the Louis G. Ford Ironmongers stand (no. 57) at the Sussex County Agricultural Show held in Eastbourne (Hampden Park). A group of men lift and set a 50FT "Dexion" slotted angle metalwork frame tower, and dress the stand for the show. Scenes include panoramic shots of an empty field from the top of the tower, followed by views of a busy show ground with public visiting the trade stalls during the show.
